In an action for personal injury to the plaintiff while a guest in defendant's car, the trial court instructed the jury that plaintiff must prove the elements required by the Guest Act, i.e., a heedless and reckless disregard of the rights of others, and not merely the common law requirements for negligence.

It was therefore error to "decide the action under the Guest Act. Siller v. Siller (Conn. Oct. 3, 1930) 151 Atl. 524.
